Slot Machine Location

Volumes have been stated on this item, and the bickering and disagreement about where the "hot" slot machines are positioned in the casino are still intense – over 60 years after slot machine games were 1st added to the gaming floor in the casinos.

The standard rule is that the most favorable slot machines were put just inside the main doorway of the casino; so that casino fanatics walking by would see real jackpot winners and be inspired to come inside … play. Our sentiment is that this is no longer the case.

The great majority of the large casinos presently are oversized complexes … you can no longer see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to have the ‘loose’ slot machines close-by any exits.

Yet another classic rule is that loose slot machines are put on the major aisles in the casinos, again so that more persons could see winning jackpots and be influenced to play. Importantly though, we find that this also is no longer a universal rule.

What casinos found over the years is that people walking down the busy aisles were frequently on the way to somewhere else. If they played slots at all, they would simply put in their loose change because they happened to be walking by. Win or lose, they would very often not stop to keep playing. And the very last thing a casino wants is for someone to win a jackpot by playing only a few coins and then not stay to put it all back in!

These days, casinos are constantly changing their perspective about where to place the loose one armed bandits.
